“About 130 km/h…” 54-year-old Dae-seong Koo climbs the mound again

Goo Dae-seong (54), the ‘Invincible Champion’, continues to challenge.

Koo Dae-seong, a veteran born in 1969, is once again on the mound in the pro league to extend his active career.

Geelong Korea announced on the 16th that Koo Dae-seong, the first coach of Geelong Korea, has officially joined the team, and plans to play an active role as a player, not as a coaching staff.

Geelong Korea explained, “We will start our last series against Adelaide starting on the 19th. We have been training steadily while teaching young players, so you can expect good performances.”

With this, Koo Dae-sung will be back in the Australian Professional Baseball League four years after the 2018-2019 season.

Koo Dae-sung, then manager of Geelong Korea, made a surprise appearance against Brisbane on January 20, 2019, recording one hit and no runs in one inning.

Koo Dae-seong, who has been active as an active player even at the age of well over 50, said, “Coach Lee Byeong-gyu and the club readily gave permission, so I can wear the Geelong Korea uniform again.” It can be filled,” he said.

He said, “I continued to build my body so that I could throw at about 130 km per hour. I want to help the junior players who will play with me even a little, and I will throw as many innings as possible to help the team.”

Currently, the oldest pitcher in the Australian Professional Baseball League is Chris Oxspring, a coach and player for the Sydney Blue Sox. Oxspring, who also pitched against Geelong Korea twice, was born in 1977 and is 8 years younger than Koo Dae-seong. 카지노

Koo Dae-seong became the oldest pitcher in the Australian League at once.  

Geelong Korea’s first coach and third-term coach Koo Dae-sung and Lee Byeong-gyu never played on the same team, but they worked together several times in the national team. In particular, at the 2000 Sydney Olympics, he played a big role in pitching and led Korea’s bronze medal, and was also a key member of the 1st WBC tournament in 2006, when he succeeded in advancing to the semifinals.

Meanwhile, Geelong Korea is recording 13 wins and 22 losses (6th place) with 5 games remaining. Geelong Korea will play the match against Melbourne, which was canceled due to rain on the 17th and reorganized, before moving to Adelaide for the final round of the season.
